Section 8: Communication

Course communication is especially important in an asynchronous online course, where the impromptu communication that typically takes place in a campus-based course or an online live course is lacking.

Students need regular and prompt communication from their instructor to ensure they are progressing through the course as intended. ​Additionally, students need to understand their own communication and participation expectations.​ During an online course, an instructor will communicate information, provide feedback, facilitate learning and engage with students as a class and individually.​
